Well folks. I bit the bullet and downloaded 5.0 and guess what? So far so good. Wifi is working just fine. I even noticed it unmounted the sd card. Whether or not i was supposed to unmount it before the download i don't know.
I'm still exploring my phone to see what enhancements 5.0 brings to my phone. I'll keep all of you posted on this thread.
I know I have said the same thing, on my last two phones, but I find myself back in the same boat, again, complaining about Verizon dragging their feet, putting out upgrades late and then the issues we have when they finally release the butchered up version that we get. I hate this, Verizon is the only company that has clear service where I live, but they are the worst when it comes to upgrades.
